Heat oil in a deep bottom fry pan. Set the heat to medium. Add the fenugreek seeds when the oil heats up. Sauté them for a minute. Now add the pounded garlic & sauté it for a minute. Next add the asafoetida powder & fry it for about 20-30s, immediately add the curry leaves & fry for a minute. Next add the potatoes & turmeric powder. Make sure the potatoes are drained well.


Fry the potatoes on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low & fry the potatoes for another 5 minutes. When the potatoes are almost 75% done then check salt & adjust. Add the chilli powder. Gently mix the chilli powder with the potatoes as they are almost done & you don't want to mash them. Let the potatoes fry in low heat for another 5 minutes till they are completely cooked & the raw flavour of chilli powder fades away.




Garnish with some additional curry leaves if required.


Serving Suggestions:


Serve hot with rice or chapati's.

Cooks' note:
Tip: My mum adds some salt to the potatoes once she chops them & keeps it aside for about 5 minutes. This accelerates the time taken to fry them.

Since I have lots of time at home off late, I relax and I cook and I clean sometimes, and recently got into an aerobic program(hope it does good for me and my extra kilos). So the other day, I was bored with lunch at home and decided to make something easy and yet tasty(the picture below is the end result). This is the easiest and tastiest stir fry you can prepare and its less time consuming.
